South Sudan president has pledged to mobilize resources through the ministry of health and partners to improve health services, saying that he and his family members will go to health facilities inside the country to avoid wasting of resources going to foreign countries for medical treatments.
Kiir said this during an inaugural function for expanding Juba Teaching Hospital on Saturday. The project is funded by China in partnership with the national ministry of health.
“Health, education, roads, agriculture, security and electricity are the main priorities of the government to alleviate all kinds of obstacles hindering the social, political and economic developmental programme,” Kiir said.
“We will work with our partners to ensure our health services are improved so that we cut down on this unnecessary movement and spending on trip for treatment outside the country. I have discussed this with the minister of health and his team to ensure we work with partners so that they help us in this area,” he added.
